Cellar/Tasting Notes
In the 1920s the Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta dreamt of creating a fundamental wine to appease the then aristocratic taste of Bordeaux wines. A wine produced from Cabernet Sauvignon, however was a great change to the Tuscan and Piedmont tradition of Sangiovese and Nebbiolo but the decision to plant the variety came from the similarity that he notes between the Tuscan terroir and Graves in Bordeaux. The wine was initially not received well but gradually by 1968-Sassicaia's first commercial release- the wine received high acclaim and was worthy of a Bordeaux Premier Cru.
James Suckling (JS): 94
"Wonderful aromas of freshly sliced coastal rosemary and currants follow through to a full body, with integrated tannins and a fine finish. This shows so much finesse and beauty. But there is a solid backbone of tannins and length. Reminds me of some of the underrated Sass of the 1980s such as 1982, 1983 or 1987."
